The Asturian has been questioned by the incident that lived with Leo Messi on the way to the second triplete of the club, and has confirmed that there was a 'brush' between both that fortunately remained resolved without consequences.

"Until it solved all there was a time of tension, that I do not look for without any doubt, but that appeared and that I had to manage", has sincerado the one of Gijón, that has explained that the changing room collaborated to turn off a fire that did not take in filtering to the media. In spite of everything, the relation did not remain 'touched': "To day of today only can speak wonders of Leo Messi".

"Of selfish way I no longer had more energy to give, and afterwards thought that with this so special group of players that had in the Barça for my had been very easy to renew, but sucked, a bestial agreement, in my house, with the best players, better impossible. But if I am honest think that the player needs that it avenges another to explain him the history of another way. I think that arrives a moment that the message, if there is message, exhausts , and has to have message so that all go out well", has reflexionado.
